You’re going to pick a theme to explore visually for the duration of the semester. Each week, you’ll design and code an entry to a collection that explores this theme. At the end of the semester, you’ll deliver a website that houses 11 programmed entries. The website container is part of the design, as well.
In mathematics, a sequence is defined as a series of numbers arranged in a predictable pattern. It’s a type of number set which follows specific, definite rules. When translated to design, sequencing is a natural part of systems — each individual item has unifying elements that when looked at as a whole, tells a larger story.
- The website and all the entries must be responsive (work on a variety of screen sizes).
- While each entry will be unique, there should be unifying visual components between them
- All hyperlinks must be functional
For Midterms, we will have a one on one meeting. At that time, you will present a refined iteration of your current collection. Prior to this meeting, think about the following questions:
- What is your theme? Has it evolved from the initial description?
- How is the content communicating the theme? What about the design?
- How would you describe the pacing of the collection so far? Does it feel considered? Can there be a moment for a dramatic break, or an acceleration?
- Are there opportunities to establish a template or system to the design — if so, when, where, and how? Can we break the system mindfully to add interest?
You will also prepare a short written doc (one paragraph) that explains your collection’s theme so far and explains three other avenues you can explore for the remaining weeks of the semester.
